Italian law provides that all children have the right and the duty to go to school from 6 to 16 years of age. As a resettled child, your minor children also fall into this category and therefore can attend classes and participate in school activities. Since your children will be automatically integrated into the compulsory National Education System, you will just have to take care of their enrollment using the online platform of the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR). You should also know that, as of the age of 15, your children have the right to choose ways of learning different from full-time study, such as alternating school-work, cultural, social and productive experiences abroad, and apprenticeship.
As an adult, you will be automatically integrated into the compulsory National Education System. Additionally, you also have the right to enroll and attend the CPIA (Provincial Centres for Adult Education) to obtain the Secondary School Diploma. If you already have a job title or qualification in your country of origin and want them to be recognized in Italy, you should ask for the “recognition of foreign qualifications” to one of the competent offices (schools, universities, MIUR or other specific ministries) and submit the documents listed on the MIUR’s website. The qualification must be translated and stamped by the Italian Embassy. If there is no chance to obtain the documents in your country of origin, you can follow one of the administrative procedures available, for example the “Declaration of Value” of MAECI or the “Credential Information Service” of CIMEA.
